presidential election where he travels at the obama campaign. alter the podium over to you now. >> with everybody take a seat. >> thank you all. i'm really looking forward to our discussion this afternoon. instead of doing opening statements, alaskan of a generic question that can help frame the discussion this afternoon and then we will go from there. since sarah, i will start with you in alphabetical order by somebody at the end of the alphabet. the question i pose to all of you is maybe if you could identify which you see as the most important lesson that we should draw from the experience of the past five years with respect to the fha. a part of that and i'd also ask is whether lawmakers and taxpayers should be prepared to accept some level of loss given the deep housing recession we found. i'll start with you. >> i just have to say how much fun it is for me to be back at cap. i think i think the big lesson regarding fha is that a core concept of the federal housing policy if it didn't work as well as we would've liked. it wasn't as nimble as it could've been in the crisis
